A good RUN at it

Today is my last day of my current Big Girl Job... I started here on December 14, 2004...and I will leave today having learned a ton, grown into a totally different person and with friendships I know will last a lifetime. It is Bittersweet.. I have an amazing job with opportunities to travel the world and experience more than you could imagine... However with the job comes a blurred line between work and life, a line I am not willing to have blurred any longer...

  • I am off to find a Balance, that new world starts Monday.. I doubt I will be Blogging much as my brain will be filled with learning my new job...

The trouble with leaving my current office is that I will also leave behind my running trails and more importantly my lunch Running buddy Kerrie..

I still remember the first time we ran together, read about it HERE.. She was scared to run with me, and did not believe she could run in the 10's pace wise... she wore my FAVORITE (sarcasm) jacket on the run :) Today she is amazingly fit, confident and FAST!!! I consider Kerrie one of my closest friends and although I will MISS our lunch runs I know that we will see each other often.. I joked yesterday that she will probably get FASTER without me holding her back at lunch...hehehehehe..

Pace me soon Kerrie???
I had to snap a few pics of our last run... I took Kerrie on a new (to her) path near the office with HILLS, and red clay trail... it was fun to adventure around for out last lunch run.. WavingWaving bye to Miss Kerrie Love this Girl!! I have to say this is one of my favorite picks of the 2 of us...YIPPEE Thanks Kerrie for the miles, the friendship and the fun... I hope you can find a new lunch run buddy soon :)


  • VACATION day tomorrow!!! I am hoping the sun comes out so I can enjoy some active fun with the family..

  • What are your plans for the weekend? Easter? etc..

A new Chapter for you. The good thing about a new chapter is many of the characters continue on throughout the "book."

I bet you'll be writing your best chapters ever with a renewed sense of Balance!

That's a big change! Wish you the best in your new ventures. Change can be fun (sometimes), and it sounds like it will be great for your family. We have changed jobs before to make our family a priority, and we never regretted it.

So excited for your new adventure and finding balance! You and Kerrie have entertained us with many great stories! I know they'll be many more...maybe just not during lunch.
